When my husband asked what I wanted for Mother's Day, I told him I wanted plants. So we went to Whataburger for dinner (I'm a cheap date!), and then to Lowe's. I got twelve Homestead tomato plants, twelve Crimson Spineless okra, an Orange Lunchbox sweet pepper, a red sweet pepper, two burpless cucumbers, and twelve Sugar Snap peas. I also got some marigolds to help keep bad bugs away from my vegetables, a Thai basil, German thyme, and Greek oregano plants.
So I got a hand tiller. Still a lot of work, but not quite as much. I finally put half of my plants in the ground on Memorial Day with about four hours of work. Then God watered them REALLY well.
Now my hands hurt.
And I have a flower on one of my cucumber plants.
